Attorney General      
             State of Missouri          

    REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES   

 
 TERESA HENSLEY
 
Upon graduation from Raymond-Peculiar high school, Hensley earned her undergraduate degree at William Jewell College and her J.D. from the University of Missouri in Kansas City. Before becoming Cass County prosecutor,

Hensley was a partner and practicing attorney for 14 years with the Hensley Law Firm in Raymore.

She has also served as a Raymore Alderman, and as a member of the Hope Haven Board, the Raymore Planning and Zoning board, and the Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Review board.

Hensley was defeated by incumbent Vicky Hartzler. Hensley ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Missouri's 4th District. Hensley ran as a Democratic candidate unopposed in the Democratic primary.

We visited her website but, the only reference we could find to the issues wqas this:

"As a former prosecutor, I saw the pain and the devastation families experience when they’re the victims of violent crime. I saw parents who lost children to drunk drivers, and children who lost their innocence to abuse. But I also saw the power of justice in action. I saw people begin to put their lives back together after justice was served in a court of law.

That’s why I’m running. I have a unique understanding of the power and importance of the Office of the Attorney General. As the state’s top prosecutor, I will seek justice with honesty and integrity for Missouri’s families."

- TERESA HENSLEY
Democrat for Attorney General

Hensley has traveled in the same circles and served on some of the same boards as Democrat Chris Koster.


 

ERIC SCHMITT

      (Eric Schmitt is the only Republican in this race)

Eric Schmitt is a Republican member of the Missouri State Senate, representing District 15. He was first elected to the chamber in 2008.
Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Glendale, who received $250,000 for his campaign for state treasurer;
Schmitt earned his B.A. from Truman State University and J.D. from Saint Louis University. His professional experience includes working as an attorney and serving as a Glendale city alderman.
  • ON THE ISSUES – Senator Schmitt’s website tells us what he has done as a State Senator and not what he will do as Treasurer.

 
It seems, the one thing he left out, that directly affects Grantwood Village voters, is Senate Bill 5, or, as we call it, the “Baby with the Bathwater Bill”.
 
The legislation was a knee jerk reaction to Ferguson that imposes excessive paperwork and expense on the Village to prove that it has not collect a disproportionate amount of revenue from people who violate traffic laws.

The supporters of the bill seem intent on ultimately destroying all villages and perhaps, all municipalities in St. Louis County.
 
The bill was overturned in the Circuit Court system, but is being appealed by Attorney General Chris Koster.


 
LIBERTARIAN PARTY CANDIDATE
There is no competition in this race until November. Incumbent Scott Sifton will face

the Republican candidate,
Dr. Randy
Jotte in the general election.
